It’s great that Congressman Goodlatte took the time to appear (and I presume answer questions) in person at an April 10 meeting of the Roanoke County Republican Committee– at least it is if you’re a Roanoke County Republican.
But the rest of us who live in the Sixth District haven’t been so privileged lately.
In fact the meeting notice posted the Republican Committee didn’t even mention that Goodlatte would be there– only that he (and other politicians) had been invited.
Although appearances by Goodlatte in the Sixth District are sometimes publicized, we usually don’t learn about them until afterwards. I’d hate to think he was making an effort to avoid constituents who might voice their disapproval of him and his record.
